ARTIST OF THE WEEK #4 _ Lyle Reimer

MTIxNDI3MjkzNzQ0Njk0Nzk3 You probably haven’t seen selfies quite like the ones Lyle Reimer posts on his Instagram page (@lylexox). Reimer,
a makeup artist who works at MAC in the company’s artistry and development program in Vancouver,
utilizes the social media platform as an art gallery for his selfies, which are often as weird as they are gorgeous.

Reimer, 36, has a style that skews a little bit Cindy Sherman and a little bit drag. A quick glance at his feed also
reveals his main influence: fashion. “I love fashion, I’m obsessed with it,” Reimer said.
A little over a year ago, after building himself a home studio to blow off creative steam after work, Reimer started his
Instagram account. Last Halloween, Instagram’s blog featured him as creative inspiration, and his account
grew from 500 to over 5,000 followers. Reimer regularly posts his latest alter egos, often accompanied by
hilarious text and copious, descriptive hashtags.

Synchronicity occurred when the power failure at the switchboard took place precisely when Deloris split her slacks
right up her backside. #colourmeembarrassed #droppedcalls #iphone #dialtone #beautymark #halloween #style

Went to my dietician yesterday and turns out that I’m severely allergic to fresh water fish, gluten, pleated dress pants
and manual labour. #nosecondopinionneeded #fish #drag #couture #clubkids #love #vogue #visionaire #wmag #wigs
